I would think you are better off drinking the capsules because they enter your bloodstream via your digestive system and nourish your roots that way. The molecules may be too big to enter your skin directly. You might need atomized biotin to do it that way but it would be a round about method. Drink them as a supplement to reap the true benefits. Just picture trying to heal a headache by rubbing a diluted Tylenol on your scalp. I figure you would have better luck getting it into your bloodstream by swallowing it. Generally when pharmacies make pills for ingestion they require certain optimum conditions in order to work.

I've seen Biotin shampoos before. I've also read that there is NO scientific proof that it can be absorbed through the skin. I've read that people here do it, I'll just swallow it

ETA: AND... I'm trying to figure out why you can post, and I still can't. AND when I ask admin I get ignored

I pop a biotin pill into my megatek/castor oil/water mix and it seems to work for me, my trick is to warm the water up a bit so the biotin powder will definately dissolve.

maybe you can just mix the two way of use... I have thought of doing that too. I take 2 pills of 5000mcg of spring valley biotin a day (my new growth changed the texture :its softer i dont know if its biotin or megatek) for those puting biotin in their megatek how many capsule of 5000mcg would you put in a 4oz megatek? I wanna try it. And is it safe to do it if you already mixed your megatek with flower powder sulfur? And do you still swallow it? I mean taking the biotin buy swallowing and in the megatek?

what about just adding it to plain old megatek amongst other oils? i cant really do the spritz thing since im transitionig with braidouts and only manipulate my hair once a week...im scared itll make my hair a big halo of frizz. will that work or not since the biotin wont be fully dissolved? and wat about adding it to conditioner?

dang 5000mcg 2x daily yall doing it big... i take 2000mcg a day
 
u might have 2 crush em and add em 2 a lil bit of water so it dissolves then u can throw it in with the megatek then add oils and all should mix together...
 
i took it and used the MT.. i would throw in 1 of those 5000mcgs
